During the year, PVI started the season 23-0 and was ranked as high as #6 in USA Today nationally, top ten in ESPN National Girls' Basketball Rankings, top ten in Max Preps National Rankings as well as # 1 in the Washington Post, and # 1 in the state of Virginia.

A very special way to send all nine seniors out on top with a win in their last game and cap off a legacy that will be hard to replace. The support of the parents, fans, and school community was second to none this year and we cannot thank everyone enough for all of their support.
